    Catch a wave in Surf City

    Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Surf City on Long Beach Island, which is just a quarter of a mile wide, draws a mix of families and surfers who flock in search of the best beaches on the East Coast. Book a Surf City vacation rental in the center of town and have the Atlantic beaches and the quieter bayside within a moment's walk. Salty sea dogs will love the New Jersey Maritime Museum, while kids hanker after Fantasy Island Amusement Park. Then after dark, feast on local seafood in one of the island's many beach restaurants.

    Lazing by the coastline

    Surf City offers the quintessential beach vacation. As well as lazing on the beach, you can fish or crab from the sea wall. Make the most of your seafront location by zipping through the ocean spray – local companies rent out equipment so you can try your hand at sailboarding, canoeing, kayaking, surfing, or SUP. Thrill seekers can make a splash waterskiing, tubing, or wake boarding. For a gentler excursion, head to the marina at Surf City Yacht club, or book a historical sightseeing or romantic sunset cruise by paddleboat on Barnegat Lake.

    Tranquil beaches and high thrills

    Surf City is one of the quieter stretches of beach on Long Beach Island, and Surf City vacation rentals are a favorite of families and couples seeking tranquil beaches, fine dining, and attractive boutiques. To the north, Barnegat Lighthouse State Park offers more glorious white sand beaches. Come summer, you can climb the historic lighthouse for panoramic, sunlit views of the bay and island. If you prefer high-adrenaline entertainment, head south to Beach Haven to enjoy the rides, games, and arcade at Fantasy Island Amusement Park or the neighboring Thundering Surf Waterpark and Adventure Golf.

    Summer sunshine in Surf City

    During the summer season, June through September, you can expect warm, sunny days reaching into the 80s and 90s. The ocean breeze is a revitalizing force, and especially welcome in high summer. Spring and fall are quieter, and have a placid charm of their own – especially because the chance of snapping up a bargain on your Surf City vacation rental increases during the mid- and low-seasons.

    Natural attractions near Surf City

    The island is perfect for exploring by bike or on the water. It is a haven for wildlife, with the white sandy beaches and dunes providing a tranquil habitat for sea and wading birds, and migrating songbirds. Barnegat Lighthouse State Park is a peaceful spot for watching the wildlife, ocean swimming, or shore fishing. Pack a picnic, relax on the warm sand, dance through the waves, or build a sandcastle. On the other side of the inlet, the Island Beach State Park is one of the last significant stretches of an ecosystem that once dominated this coastline.
